1. Is each panel 550W or a whole combination? What about the size and weight?
2. How many kWh a day does this solar panel produce?
3.Why choose this high-powered 550W module rather than 5-6 100W solar panels?
4. Can these panels be used on a grid-tied system?
Sure, these solar panels are grid-tied. These high-powered 550 Watt solar panels are on/off grid ready. They work well with on-grid, off-grid, and hybrid systems. But please note that when using them on on-grid and hybrid systems, we recommend that you contact a licensed solar installer familiar with on-grid/hybrid setups.
On-Grid solar system means solar power equipment (array or solar panel) is connected to the utility grid.
Off-Grid solar system refers to a system that is not connected to the grid. An Off-Grid system is not affected by grid blackouts.
A Hybrid system is when your solar panels remain connected to the grid's power lines and have a backup battery system to store excess power.
5. How should I connect solar panels to my electrical circuit (series vs parallel)?
Solar panels can be connected in series or in parallel to meet your electrical circuit size and power demand.
Connecting solar panels in series will have the effect of adding up their operating voltage output, while system current output will be the same as that for one panel.
While connecting solar panels in parallel will have a different effect. The output current will add up to be the system output current, while system output voltage will be the same as the output voltage of one solar panel.
To meet your power system's optimum power output and system rating, you can use parallel and series connections.
6. Do these panels have pre-drilled holes on the back?
7. Can this solar panel be adapted to a 12V Marine Battery or 48V Lithium Battery?
8. What do I need to have to complete my off-grid solar power system?
Here’s a list of all the equipment required for a functioning off-grid solar system:
Solar Panels, Solar Charge Controller, Inverter(s), Battery, Mounting and Racking System, Wiring Cables, and Fuses. Please note that Renogy 550 Watt Monocrystalline Solar Panel is highly compatible with major micro inverters.
